3. Jake Kubas

The Giants didn't draft a single offensive lineman in the draft, but they were able to pick up one of the most sought after undrafted players directly after. Jake Kubas was an undrafted offensive lineman from North Dakota State. He, like Rogers, will face an uphill climb with an offensive line group that has been revamped with players this offseason. But much like the interior defensive line group, with so many of those players being unproven, Kubas will have a big chance to make a name for himself in training camp.

Kubas played tackle while in college, but he lacks the ideal size to do so on the NFL level. As a guard, Kubas stands 6-4 and 304 pounds. He is a bit undersized for the position, but what he lacks in size he will try his best to make up for with his technical play and great understanding of the game. He comes from a very well-known school of hard-working smart players.

The Giants paid a good amount for Kubas during the undrafted free agent frenzy to ensure they signed him. Giants general manager Joe Schoen revamped the entire offensive line unit, including the coach, so Kubas will have to fight tooth and nail to earn a spot on this team. Kubas might project better as a practice squad player for the upcoming season with a chance to move up to the main roster.

Schoen signed five veteran free agent offensive linemen in Jermaine Eluemunor, Jon Runyan Jr, Austin Schlottman, Matt Nelson, and Aaron Stinnie. With project guards Josh Ezeudu and Marcus McKethan still in the mix, Kubas is going to have a long road ahead of him in that offensive line room. With Eluemunor and Runyan the projected starters, Kubas will have to try and beat numerous linemen if he wants a spot on this final 53-man roster. We'll see if he can make that happen.
